Vegan Stuffed Zucchini with Tomato Sauce

Stuffed and gratinated vegetables are so variable that you can basically always discover new combinations. This is also the case with this recipe. You don't like zucchini? No problem, bell peppers can be stuffed just as well. For this recipe I used zucchini from my mother-in-law's garden and it really paid off - these zucchinis have flavor! The filling is a mixture of vegan mince, zucchini pulp and whole grain rice along with some spices. And because everything tastes better when baked over, there's a load of vegan grated cheese on top! Who can resist that? In addition, there is a fruity tomato sauce on the plate, which I have intentionally kept quite puristic, so that it doesn't steal its thunder from the zucchini.

  • 4 long zucchini or 2 ball zucchini

  • 250g vegan Mince
